From the Editor: Thank You

One of the first letters I wrote for  this magazine was about getting up and running again. I had reignited my love of the sport by taking an old route in Rowayton, where I grew up. That run was the best way I knew how to reconnect. And I was right. Since then, as the lucky editor of this publication, I’ve caught up with old, dear friends and made many, many new ones.

But it’s time to move on. A new editor will be on board, starting with the July/August issue.

I feel fortunate to have this chance to say thank you to the residents of New Canaan, Darien and Rowayton. The stories I’ve heard, what you all do, leaves me utterly amazed. How many times have I struck up a conversation only to find out that the person I am chitchatting with runs a major network, started a company, or founded a nonprofit to protect our most vulnerable citizens? “You do what?” I ask this all the time, shaking my head. Trust me, you’re a thrilling bunch to cover.

I have much to do to fill in the new editor, Jeanne Craig. And I would like your help. Please introduce yourself to her at events, the coffee shop and the library and…you get it. A resident of Rowayton, Jeanne is smart, funny and easy to talk to. She’s already told me how much she is looking forward to meeting people from the three towns.

I’m grateful for the privilege of covering your stories and for the unique connection with a place I cherish. I have no doubts that Jeanne feels the same way. You will learn more about her in our next issue, which, perfectly enough, is our “Best Of” issue. If she’s looking for a great running route, I might mention a special loop that worked for me.

Best always,
Diane Sembrot
